COVID Censorship On Social Networks Monopolies To Hurt Trump

October 6, 2020

Twitter removed the following Tweet from Trump:

Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Twitter removed the tweet and added: This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible. Learn more

Trump is right: a bit of perspective is needed here. According to the World Health Organization, Pneumonia killed more than 808 000 children under the age of 5 in 2017, accounting for 15% of all deaths of children under 5 years. COVID lockdowns disorganize healthcare gravely, to the point that they kill more than the alternative, now that the first surprise is past.

Twitter and related tech monopolies were fostered to monopoly powers under the Obama administration to manage and spy on We The People. The tech monopolies are anxious to get Trump out of the way. They help, by depicting him as a “misleading and potentially harmful” criminal. So they apply censorship for all to see, in the hope that the fools will thing less of Trump. Now the plutocratic media will say: look Trump is anti-science, they had to remove his misleading, harmful tweet. Tech monopolies have other censorship methods which can’t be seen (but have been applied to me for more than a decade; Tucker Carlson discovered that method the hard way on his show a week ago…).

Hacker who went to college just two years. Hacked a company, and leveraged that into a career. Became a high multibillionaire from stock appreciation caused by Twitter monopoly position (not from profits). Dates models. Knows what viral truth is from being a monopolistic genius. Loved by its sponsor, the Global Deep State.

Closing down countries to fight COVID was justified when the virus was unknown, without therapeutics. But the situation has changed. Lockdowns  have become counterproductive. Twitter thinks it knows science but it probably does not even read Science Magazine (I have a life honorary membership to Science).

Here is from: COVID-19 affects HIV and tuberculosis care. Quarraisha Abdool Karim, Salim S. Abdool Karim. Science 24 Jul 2020, Vol. 369, Issue 6502, pp. 366-368. DOI: 10.1126/science.abd1072.

Access to medical care for non–COVID-19 conditions was limited during the lockdown, with health facilities experiencing declines in the number of TB and HIV patients collecting their medication on schedule. The World Health Organization estimates that a 6-month disruption of antiretroviral therapy could lead to more than 500,000 additional deaths from AIDS-related illness in 2021 and a reversal of gains made in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (10). In South Africa, 1090 TB patients and 10,950 HIV patients in one province have not collected their medications on schedule since the start of the national lockdown (11). A national survey of 19,330 individuals in South Africa found that 13.2% indicated that their medication for chronic disease was inaccessible during the lockdown (12). Furthermore, hospital admissions for HIV and TB declined as a result of hospitals reducing nonurgent admissions in preparation for a surge of COVID-19 cases and owing to closures to reduce exposure to COVID-19 patients. The potential negative impact on the continuity of care for HIV and TB patients could have substantial repercussions for both treatment and control, including development of drug resistance (6).

One can also consult the World Health Organization:

The cost of inaction: COVID-19-related service disruptions could cause hundreds of thousands of extra deaths from HIV.

At this point, COVID is used politically. Statistics are unreliable: one cannot compare countries to each other, or even to themselves in the fullness of time. There is no universal criterion of when a person died from COVID. If someone with COVID dies in a motorbike crash dies, will that person be counted as a COVID death? It depends. Should it be counted as a COVID death? It depends. The victim could have developed Guillain-Barré syndrome. Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks part of its peripheral nervous system. It seems FDR had it (it was not Polio). COVID patients can develop it, it is not so rare with COVID, days after their other symptoms are gone. 

Twitter and company are censors and mind manipulators. Their behavior is anti-civilizational. Potentially harmful. In their desire to get their way, they use censorship. They have ways which prevent ideas and rebellious authors to spread.

And the tech monopolies can kill because they spread misinformation, perhaps unwittingly, but certainly deliberately. The coronavirus is, basically, airborn. Most masks do not stop it. So people get it from confined spaces. Chinese dictatorship disinformation fostered the belief the coronavirus was spreading mostly from surfaces and masks stopped it. Both assertions seem increasingly false. Meanwhile Brazil is using Sinevac, the Chinse COVID vaccine made in China, and widely distributed there already. Hey, maybe I should be censored for propagating this truth which the Chinese dictatorship loving tech monopolies will surely find misleading? Anything which question the ways and means of the origin of this coronavirus now, is beyond “fringe”: it is potentially “misleading and harmful”.

Tech monopolies are a disaster for the progress of equity, social justice, humanity, mind and science, or even tech: they steal with impunity from all, Obama made it so, thus it should be right. Obama was the puppet with the strongest strings.

Don’t worry: I am censored aplenty already, the truth shall not go far. And enjoy this site while it still exists: unknown forces have tried to take it down since I published: Do Iraqi Lives Matter? I wonder why not.

Speaking of “fringe”, my friend Roger Penrose was long viewed as “fringe”. Just as yours truly, but more justifiably famously, Penrose believes Quantum Mechanics is coming short. He believes, as I do, in “objective collapse”. My idea is that matter distribution itself causes collapse… creating inertia and Dark Matter, among others things. In any case, Penrose was not well considered among “serious” physicists. However it has become increasingly clear that serious physicists are not serious. Recent physics Nobels have gone to astronomy and Quantum Optics (as they should have). Forty years ago, it would have been unimaginable that Penrose would get the Nobel in physics. In my eyes, he deserved it. But at the time, he was viewed as too “fringe”. Well, he just got the Nobel. So there is a ray of hope that significance arises anew…

Truth without significance has no meaning.
